Long-Term Care Home Residents with Pressure Ulcers

This indicator shows the percentage of long-term care home residents in Ontario who had a new pressure ulcer (bed sore), or one that worsened, since their previous assessment by a health care professional. A lower percentage is better. The provincial benchmark is 1%. Pressure ulcers can develop in long-term care home residents who lie or sit in one position for too long.
